Not a lot to report today. Recovering from my stomach flu here at home. Slept from 9:15 am-12:45 pm and from 2:30-4 pm. I started feeling human again this afternoon. Still a little off, but better.

Mike's nurse, Judy (another Judy. Not the n.p.), has had him before several times so she knows Mike pretty well. I talked to her this afternoon and she says Mike is having a great day. She said he is far more alert than he was over the weekend and ate a great breakfast and lunch.

I am planning on going to the hospital tomorrow, assuming that I keep feeling better. Fingers crossed.

Info for visitors. I haven't written about the logistics in a while:

Mike's in 6604b Jefferson Hospital for Neuroscience, 900 Walnut Street.
Entrance is on 9th street between Locust and Walnut.

If you're driving in, you can park in the parking garage that is attached to the hospital. The garage entrance is on 9th street on the left, just above Locust street. I have tacked a few discount parking stickers on the bulletin board in Mike's room. It's lets you park for $8 instead of he normal $15.

Lance, Ralph, and i had dinner with mike thurs night. Mike was asleep when we got there, but the nurses woke him and sat him up. They were also nice enough to heat up the take-out we brought for him. He ate quite a bit and seemed to enjoy the break from hospital food. Mike was able to tell us about a trip he took to France and was also the best out of the four of us at naming the singers on his mix cd (although, I did get Duran Duran correct). Whenever I asked, "who sings this" he was quick to answer. He enjoyed talking about music. His face lit up when we asked him about Baxter and Danna and he was able to talk to us about him as well. The nurses seemed highly attentive and also seemed to have bonded with Mike. He quickly went back to sleep after he finished his dinner.

Danna,
Hope you are feeling better. Pat and I had the same flu. My doctor suggested a half gallon of Gator Ade a day to keep from getting dehydrated. It took almost a week before we could eat solid food. It's a nasty one!!
Glad to hear about updates on Mike from all his friends.
